Have eaten there twice, first time got pasta but saw the kebabs going to another table and they looked worth trying. Second time ordered, and everything from the presentation to the quality of the food made me glad I ordered them. Menus available in English which was a huge help and both times the young waiters were helpful, accommodating, and... More

We ate here with friends having walked the streets and searched for somewhere to eat inside as it was chilly. The menu appealed as there were vegetarian options even though it's predominantly a meat restaurant. We had great service, fabulous steaks and delicious wine. Our vegetarian friend said the calamari was delicious too. Well worth a visit.

We sat outside and ordered mixed grill and ribs. The dishes arrived quickly, the service was very friendly, the food looked and tasted really good. When we finished we were asked if we would like more ribs to eat-nice touch! The food comes with butter and fresh bread. This is a good place to eat and have a drink, the... More

The service was great, as was the steak I chose. I liked the flavored oil on each table but please do put a label on the bottles. Good thing I asked what was in the bottle (didn't recognize the peppers). The crème brulee is one of the best I ever tasted.

Went here on a Sunday night, the place was really busy and seemed nice and cozy. Had the BBQ ribs, because if the place is called ribs, you should. Enjoyed them! Not the greatest in the world, but (as you can read in one of my other reviews) most certainly not the worst. Friendly staff, who did a nice job... More

Wonderful experience. Meal for 2 was simply delicious!! Ribs to die for, and even room for pudding which was equally as amazing! Definitely eating here again, can't recommend it enough!

Very nice experience!!! We were a group of 6, had no reservation, the restaurant was full, yet the very friendly staff found a prompt solution, the steak archiduc was great, exactly how I expected, great choice of side orders, quick service, value for money, I liked the relaxed atmosphere, we had a very nice evening and will surely be back.

I wish I had read these comments in advance before eating there. As other comments I was disappointed about the ribs which we got. I was surprised we got our meal so fast. It seemed indeed that these ribs were quickly warmed up again (poorly). It was a disappointment to eat ribs which were not really warm, realizing they were... More

We wanted to go to ll Piccantin but couldn't get a table so we by accident went to this restaurant. I had Ribs which were not really great. There wasn't really anything bad about them but it was just average, just what you get when you buy marinated ribs in the supermarket and put them in your own oven. Far... More

As usual I had planned where to eat using Tripadvisor, unfortunately both Il Piccantino and La Vecchia Napoli were closed for their summer break. So we stumbled on Ribs. Staff were young lads primarily socialising with friends and other staff. My wife had probably the worst caesar salad we have ever experienced. My parents had barbecue chicken, much of which... More

This is actually an incredible commentary, for the following reasons, as staff already working 11-hour morning should not eat? A toilet that stinks?? bad ceasar salads where we usually get very good criticism and our BBQ chicken that's bad this is hilarious ? . But when I see that in the 21 years that we have been open and do... More
